    1 Best Buy

    The 2021 vintage of the J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah has been named the top best buy of the year by Wine Enthusiast. Every November, Wine Enthusiast ranks their 100 Best Buys for that year. It’s quite an honor to make the list of the world’s best buys. But being named the #1 best value wine overall takes things to a whole other level.

    93 Points • #1 Best Buy for 2023
    This is a very satisfying Syrah for a rather stunning price. Lush and generous aromas of baked berry, hot spice cake and a touch of crushed rock show on the nose. The palate is brooding in cassis, boysenberry pudding and baking spice flavors, framed by impressively deep tannins.” – Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Nov. 23 issue

    Our South Ridge” Syrah was named for the sloping southern ridges in our Paso Robles vineyards, where soils with moderate water-holding capacity offer ideal conditions for growing this noble Rhône variety. Since its very first vintage in 1993, the J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah has spotlighted rich, Paso Robles fruit character allied to Rhône-style spice and structure.

    For Syrah lovers, for a limited time, we are offering complimentary shipping on 6 bottles of the #1 Best Buy J. Lohr Estates South Ridge Syrah or a collection of three 90+ Point J. Lohr reds that includes the South Ridge release.
